Walking & Hiking Tracks
  • Kilkee Cliffs Loop Walk
    The cliffs of Kilkee are far less known, but not less impressive than the Cliffs of Moher... and no entrance fees, few people only, tranquility! Most people only walk the mile from Kilkee's West End up to the first cliff, but it's well worth to walk all the way along the coast. This is a suggested loop walk, but you can do it along the coast only, in both directions, take a short cut halfway - or cycle it. All is very rewarding. max. length 18.4 km, 4-5 hrs
  • Coastal Loop Walks Clare Ireland: Whitestrand to Blue Pool (near Doonbeg)
